I have a couple of confessions to make. The first is that I have not been doing any sewing. At first I chalked it up to post-vacation doldrums and the psychological adjustments that usually accompany the return to reality. Anyways, I’ve done a tonne of thinking and tracing and mental sewing, but not much real sewing.
I embellished the neckline of the swimsuit coverup.
And started working on a small stumpwork box. I’m new to stumpwork, but have always been intrigued by it. Here’s a fern leaf and a bluebell – fishbone and straight stitch. I’ll be working on bigger bluebell petals with wire later.
